Tell your doctor at the start of your appointment that you have questions
Doctors have different preferences when it comes to the timing of questions. Some like to save all of the questions until the end of the visit whereas others, such as Dr. Minkin, like to hear them right off the bat. "If I know a patient's questions from the start, I may look for certain things during the exam," she says. Either way, giving your doctor a heads-up can help her organize the appointment and budget time for some Q&A.
